1) don't post without subject
2) boot any usix from floppy or CD, get to shell and use dd to wipe out
beginning of disk
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0 bs=64k count=1
with linux replace ad0 with hda, with NetBSD use rwd0d.
3) install windoze or any OS as with empty drive.
PS. i assumed your hard drive is on first IDE channel master.
